ROTTERDAM, Netherlands (March 13, 2015) – The U.S. Under-16 Boys’ National Team dropped a 2-1 decision against the Czech Republic at the 2015 U-16 Netherlands International Tournament.
The Czech Republic struck twice in the first half with goals from Antonin Rusek in the 19th minute and a second tally right before the half from Filip Kubala in the 38th. USA’s Nick Taitague cut the lead to a one-goal deficit in the 53rd, but it was not enough to overcome the Czech’s early attack.
The USA will finish the tournament when it faces the Netherlands on March 15.
The USA camp roster competing in the tournament consists of 21 players with 18 currently playing in the Development Academy.
